A gorilla caught in the African forest is embarked in a crate aboard a ship for Hamburg, before being exposed to the zoo. To get out of this confinement, he decides to become a man. His continuous progress will enable him then to attain the status of human, to gain his freedom and become a wealthy industrialist. Adopting all human beings and following the example of what he himself has undergone, he will exploit and despise those around him, until he becomes aware of the absurdity of human life. Tickets range from €18 to €29.
